Jerusalem (E-Squared/Artemis Records)

Well before its release, one of Jerusalem's 11 tracks had already stirred a hornet's nest of controversy. "John Walker's Blues," wildly misinterpreted in the media as "unpatriotic," delves into the mind of the so-called "American Taliban" in an attempt to discover what drove Walker into the arms, and ideology, of terrorists.

Lucky for Steve, little else on Jerusalem is likely to be misunderstood - this defiant left-winger's beliefs are spelled out clearly and aggressively on his politically charged 10th album. Backed with ragged, rock-leaning music, songs like "Amerika v. 6.0 (The Best We Can Do)" and "The Truth" tackle hot-button issues facing the country.
